If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering One Identity Active Roles, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Test it. Whenever you test it in your real environment, you normally want it. If you talk with an AD administrator about this solution and you display the features: How you save time, how you avoid errors, etc. It's a really good product. The main problem is getting companies to pay money for the product, but all AD administrators want to have this solution.
My advice would be to certainly consider Active Roles and, depending on the size of the organization, consider integrating it with Starling as well. I know the solution is extensible through cloud-delivered services but we don't use those currently. I would rate Active Roles a nine out of ten, based on the convenience it's given us.
I would give this solution a nine out of ten. There's always room for improvement. With every product, nothing is completely done. But this product is definitely up there.
This product has tremendous potential. It can be used to automate a lot of day to day activities. I always tell my customers, list down all your requirements, pain areas, and day to day tasks. Prioritize them, and use this tool to automate these tasks as per priority.
